    I have been working at EnerNOC full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of young people, very energetic and fast paced place to work. Given a lot of responsibility early on in one's career.

    Cons

    Limited investment in people. Almost non-existent HR presence and haphazard, individual-manager driven promotion process.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. Great initiatives are only great depending on the people who work on them. It's easy to burn people out and not worth the loss of knowledge and productivity.

    I worked at EnerNOC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Demand response is the flagship product/technology, and it's very cool. A very novel concept, and energy markets are incredibly interesting/complex - lots of on the job learning

    Cons

    Demand Response is becoming increasingly commoditized and margins ENOC commands on deals is decreasing in domestic markets.

    I worked at EnerNOC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best and brightest people you'll ever work with. Great company mission and vision. Lots of opportunity to make an impact for employees of any level. Can be a chaotic place to work, but usually in a good way.

    Cons

    Company is sometimes ambitious to the point of arrogance, leading to over-investment in things that aren't yet proven viable on the assumption that they are sure to succeed.

    I worked at EnerNOC as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    EnerNOC is an innovative cutting-edge company that was great to do contract work for. They have great people working in many different teams. It was a pleasure to support the user base internally and/or remotely.

    Cons

    There did not seem to be any when I was contracting for them. I was even given an opportunity to interview for a fulltime position within EnerNOC but had already decided to take another position closer to home.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and continue to respect employees life/work balance.

    I worked at EnerNOC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -great business culture and learning environment
    -transparency is highly valued
    -many full-time employees were pass interns

    Cons

    -frequent changes and restructuring
    -passive-aggressive staff
    -

    Advice to Management

    When dealing with employees that are less competent, be more straightforward and transparent. It is unfair to the rest of the team to pick up the slack without proper recognition and not knowing if management is doing something about it

    I worked at EnerNOC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The number one reason I loved working at EnerNOC was the people. They were bright, committed, caring, and for the most part, decent people. I enjoyed coming to work everyday and pushing myself to the edge of my abilities. It was an opportunity that I'll always be grateful for, and I learned a ton.

    Cons

    Sales are not so good, and they underwent a RIF in September 2016. It was a shame to see such talent walk out the door.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was great. He did the best he could. Executives do not communicate with management, and that's concerning.
